The White Horse
"She didn't want to relax; she had to stay on guard because people could turn on you any second.

When she's not sure where she's headed or what's going to take her there, Raina writes.

She'd like to help Raina, but she doesn't know where to start, or if Raina will ever be able to trust anyone again...
